Can you say of your hunt cost over $2500 ? I've been looking for a sheep hunt on the cheap for quite a while, but most ranchers in West Texas know there is a market for almost anything.

Why not hunt free ranging Barbary in New Mexico? Non-resident tag is $360 and the hunt dates for the good Barbary areas is Feb. 1-28, 2007. I have hunted them here several times and have never had a problem finding sheep. I HAVE had a problem, however, getting within a mile of them after we found them. They are one reason I am starting to stretch my shooting distance out to past 500 yards. I have passed on sheep at the 750 to 1000 yard range hoping to get closer. Every time, something has happened and the sheep got away. Once I get my confidence up at those ranges and I get one of Kirby's creations, them sheep better look out [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] BTW, that is a great ram there, huntem! Congrats!
